Your registration includes a parking permit for the Library parking lots. If you park in any other lots, you will be responsible for purchasing your own one-day parking pass from a parking lot kiosk. Passes are not needed when parking in the library lot during the events. Approximately one week prior to the events, you will receive a map with the parking locations.
Day 1: ACRL Roadshow, Engaging with the ACRL Framework
The Framework’s vision of information literacy education as a shared responsibility of all educators suggests both opportunities and challenges for teaching librarians, as we expand pedagogical approaches and partnerships. This workshop supports librarians in engaging more deeply with the Framework and exploring ways that it may help to enrich their individual teaching practices, as well as their local instruction programs and institutions.
Throughout this workshop participants will explore concepts and pedagogical approaches outlined in the Framework and their significance to their own instructional work. Attendees will apply their learning and reflection to creating instruction plans for their local contexts and considering possibilities for growing teaching partnerships.

Day 2: CRD Workshop, Academic Libraries: Powering Progress with Essential Literacies
Academic libraries are known as champions of information literacy. Though information literacy is vital to the critical thinking development of college students, it is not the only literacy needed to be successful. Additionally, many libraries are interpreting information literacy beyond its traditional definition to increase their scope and services to their campus communities. This workshop will highlight academic library efforts to address essential literacies for their campus communities through instruction, programs, services, and collections. It will also feature academic PA Forward(™) Gold Star Libraries (http://paforwardstarlibraries.org/), who will share their stories about their journeys to gold.
